Docked Window / Multi Monitor Issue

Hope someone can help with a problem I've been having recently. Nice to see these forums are so active still after so long.

for years now I have always had Winamp on my secondary monitor, docked to the top of the screen. Double clicking it swaps between full and docked mode, and everything worked well. I'm using the big Bento skin on Windows 10.

I have recently upgraded my primary montitor to 2560 x 1440 (previously both were 1920 x 1080).

Now when I try to use docked mode on the secondary monitor, it disappears somewhere off the top of the screen. I can recover the window with some messing about, but can only ever have it in full size mode. As soon I try to go docked, it will disappear again.

Any ideas? Everything still works fine if I use the primary monitor, but I really want it on the secondary again.

I have this issue as well and I think it's due to have different monitors with different resolutions. Unfortunately I don't believe there is a easy fix on this as I am not sure winamp is able to determine the top of a smaller screen correctly.

Your best bet imo is either not have winamp dock, or change the screen positioning of your smaller screen in windows settings so that it will be inline with the top of the larger screen.


Current status of Winamp: (Winamp 5.8) is not an ongoing project get wacup

5.8 beta issue quick fix - Install 5.666 (there's no further 5.8 releases)
